Time System 20 BeiDou time is named as BDT, traced to UTC, and synchronized with UTC within 100ns. The epoch time of BDT is UTC 00d 2006. Interoperability of BDT with GPS/Galileo time was considered in the design of BeiDou time system. The offset between BDT and GPST/ GST will be measured and broadcast.
BeiDou uses China Geodetic System 2000 (CGS2000) Coinciding with ITRF at a few cm level, and for most applications the difference between CGS2000 and ITRF can be ignored. Coordinate System 21
Services and Performances Two kinds of global services Open Service ： free and open to users Positioning Accuracy: 10 m Timing Accuracy: 20 ns Velocity Accuracy: 0.2 m/s Authorized Service: ensure high reliable use even in complex situation. 22
Services and Performances Two kinds of regional services Wide area differential service Positioning accuracy: 1 m short message service 23

Views on Compatibility and Interoperability Related Bilateral Activities Compatibility and Interoperability 35
Compatibility: the ability of multiple satellite navigation system to be used separately or together, without causing harmful interference with use of each individual service or signal. International Telecommunication Union provides a framework for discussion on radiofrequency compatibility. 36 Compatibility
Spectrum overlap: There actually exist some cases of frequency overlap between signals of different systems and it is feasible for navigation systems to share the same frequency spectrum. The frequency spectrum overlap of open signals is beneficial for the realization of interoperability for many applications. 37 Compatibility
Spectrum separation of authorized service : The authorized service signal spectrum separation with open service signals is beneficial. Signal design should consider many factors. Due to the quite limit of frequency resources, authorized signal spectrum separation is very difficult at present. It’s very difficult to satisfy the frequency resource requirements of modernization signals of existing systems and the signals of new systems to be built. 38 Compatibility
Interoperability: the ability of open services of multiple satellite navigation system to be used together to provide better capabilities at the user level than would be achieved by relying solely on one service, without significantly increasing the complexity of receiver. 39 Interoperability
Benefit gained is larger than cost paid Provide better capabilities at the user level Be easy for developing and manufacturing of interoperable receivers Broadcast interoperability information including the time differences between various System Time mutually Comparative max received power is beneficial for interoperability Common frequency spectrum is important Frequency diversity is beneficial for the improvement of anti-jamming capability Possible interoperable signal s B1-C ： 1575.42MHz B2a ： 1176.45MHz B2b ： 1207.14MHz 40 Interoperability
